A post with Mathias Sommer Lauridsen (@mslcs2) shared.
In this post, MSL thanked all his former teammates, coaches, management, and all who helped him fulfill his dream of having a living in a hobby. The Dane also mentioned it would be an obvious choice for him to pursue a career in coaching now that he retired, but he feels something else is calling, although he didn’t share what could be.

During his career, MSL represented a cynical team of European teams, notably North, OpTic Gaming, Rogue, Dignitas and Copenhagen Wolves. In the past two years, he struggled to finish CS:GO, but in 2016 and 2017, he managed to give a few trophies to North, Dignitas, and OpTic.
Especially when it comes to football under Norths banner, MSL secured a few pivotal victories – such as Open Valencia 2018 and Open Montreal 2017. In these tournaments, MSL beat the giants from the CS:GO scene back in the time, such as Astralis, FaZe Clan and Virtus Pro.
MSL, despite not having a Major trophy under his belt, has been widely recognized by the community as one of the most highly respected Danish players in the CS:GOs history, which has reached its final goal. He was regarded as one of the best player in the series, but rarely managed to keep a team at top of CS:GO for long, other than North in 2017.
